Sidney and our Framers encouraged future generations to use their God-given reason, and work toward continual improvement.

"— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

As long as society pursues the truth, it is capable of correcting misperceptions and mistakes. Freedom to pursue the truth doesn’t exist under slavish regimes; it is a characteristic of a free society.

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

OUTSTANDING post/essay Jacquerie. Thanks. BUMP!
